Most people are unaware of the changes to the property registration laws at the Registro Nacional or National Registry which were modified last year. However, these changes have opened the doors to shysters preying on the innocent.
Costa Rica’s registry laws are over 100 years old. This means they were written before computers existed. Because of this, no registration was ever deleted even if it was full of mistakes.
